Help Reading a Medical Diagnosis

Recommended Posts

familyhistoryman

I need help reading the condition that caused McKnight No 852 (his it on the top line of the attached image). It appears to be "Inf of Stom" which I have interpreted as "infection of Stomach." Is this correct. I also noted that Ashworth No 8585 a few rows below as the same condition. I have also checked other pages and found other men with the same condition but the handwriting is difficult to read.

I appreciate any help you might be able to give.

Inclined to think Inflammation rather than infection. Someone else may think otherwise...

Sorry, but the scan isn't detailed enough to see the rest of the entry and thus the context.

Sorry about the quality of the image which was from findmypast. It can be viewed at

Had a look and there are a few similar entries all seem to me to say Inf. of stom with a code of 489. If you check through other MH106 books for code 489 you may find it written out in full.

 

There are also cases of Inf. mid. ear, Inf. of mouth, Inf. of larynx.

 

I'd go with inflammation.

The front page of the record  above in post 4 showed the following classification for wounds

https://search.findmypast.co.uk/record/browse?id=s2%2fgbm%2fmh106%2fmh106-924%2f0003

It is from  Army Book 27a Admission and Discharge Book for Field Service
